15. How to inform Americans that it is the biggest challenge facing us now
Edited on Sun Apr-25-10 10:39 PM by politicasista
that is the question.

Immigration and all its protests are on the news considering what happened in Arizona. Been hearing that there is a need to shore up the Hispanic vote for the Midterm and 2012 elections, given that Obama won this voting block singlehandedly.

I do not think the Senator should give up, it is just that there is so much misinformation about Climate Change and the environment that is it hard to speak about this without being wonkish. How many even know that Kerry is good on the environment if "progressives" are complaining that TMOE was copying what Gore did with TAOR? With Immigration, it is about "them (the Hispanics) taking our jobs, schools, etc. from the Amurican' people." (the TN GOP talking point, sigh!)

Applaud both he and Momma T for making that case about the environment being a broad issue, not just a white liberal one. Same with Majora Carter (Bronx woman). She admitted a while back that the environment and going green was not a top priority (especially now that the unemployment rate in the AA community is still high) in her neighborhood but she hoped that one day people in her neighborhood will catch on.

Good post, do not understand what the gas tax thing is about, but the more that comes out, hopefully it can be explained more to counter the lies/spin.
